“We have been using David Ford of New Point Recruitment through his consultancy for the last 4 years that I have been Chief Operating Officer of the Gold Coast Airport. We have always found David to be very attentive and diligent in understanding our brief, what staff were required and then delivering people that fitted our brief. In a lot of cases, employment agencies are more concerned in filling the vacancy and getting paid than delivering the right person whereas David was always concerned with delivering the right persons and his continued tenure as our key external employment broker”.
‘North Coast Community Housing has worked with New Point Recruitment for a year now and have been impressed with the professionalism and quality of the service. We have used New Point recruitment for all levels in our business – from frontline staff to executive level and have been extremely happy with the quality of candidates.
Our Recruitment Consultant, David Ford, spent a lot of time understanding our organisation, our culture and our values. He spent time understanding the job role and specifications and individually matched high quality candidates to job roles. I would highly recommend New Point Recruitment to any prospective business’
“We engaged New Point Recruitment with a task of finding us an Operations Manager for our medium-sized (and growing) cosmetics and beauty business on the Gold Coast. This was our first experience with a professional recruitment agency, prior to which we had used word of mouth and other advertising methods. Given that our criteria and location were working against us, the results that New Point Recruitment provided were timely and impressive… They provided support and guidance and ultimately led us to hire the key person, which was critical for our business growth. The appointed candidate is now a trusted and highly regarded member of our staff and we have no doubts the decision to hire New Point Recruitment for this process was the right one”.
“Gold Coast Fireplace and BBQ had always done its own recruiting, with mixed success, but always with difficulty to find sufficient time to give to this very important task. David was recommended to us and from our initial discussion we found he was immediately able to understand the position needs and the nuances of our requirements. At this time he had completed two extremely successful appointments for us, each with the usual required urgency, and in each case having provided us with a choice of high standard candidates. I have no hesitation in recommending David as a thoroughly competent and professional recruiter of all levels of staff.”
Making the decision to expand our workforce and the thought of trying to find suitable employees to complement our existing staff was a daunting thought, let alone going through the interviewing process. After looking at various options I decided to go with New Point Recruitment and directly worked with the owner, David Ford who I felt had a better understanding of what I was hoping to achieve.
Throughout the process, David’s responsiveness and communication levels were excellent and he kept me informed every step of the process. The ease of the process and minimal input from myself meant that I could continue to run my business while I had David finding suitable candidates. We had two very different roles to fill and both successful candidates are still with us and are a valuable part of the team.
Thank you for your efforts and expertise.
“Having always undertaken recruitment in house, with massively varied results after a couple of poor efforts, we decided to use a recruitment agent. Of the 3 or 4 we contacted, David stood out based on both his attitude and personal touch approach. The entire process from start to finish was seamless both for us and our new Admin Coordinator. Instead of scraping the barrel and choosing the best of a poor bunch, we were presented with three candidates each of which had strengths likened to our business. We’ll definitely be using New Point again for future positions and I’d highly recommend letting a professional handle the process.”
“David Ford has been involved with Kitchens Plus for the last 4 years as our human resources department. Well that’s how we think of David. Kitchens Plus hire a wide range of staff from truck drivers to highly skilled industry specific designers and from showroom consultants to administrative officers. When we give David the task of sourcing new staff we are always happy with the screened and interviewed candidates. David has been able to understand what makes our company tick and finds us like-minded people who tend to stay long-term. This in turn tends to make our business run better. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of David Ford”.
“During my time as Acting CEO of Gold Coast Tourism, David and I worked closely in the restructure and recruitment of four key roles in the organisation. Namely the Executive Director of Marketing, the Chief Financial Officer and two other senior marketing manager roles. I found David’s advice, structured recruitment approach and diligence reassuring and invaluable. The evidence is to be found in the ongoing contribution these appointees are making to the continued success of Gold Coast Tourism”.
I had a very productive and successful experience with New Point Recruitment.
David was helpful, earnest and I believe impartial.
As a result of this recruitment process, I successfully acquired my dream job in my desired location, and my career aspirations were fulfilled.
I would recommend David as I believe he invests time in not only understanding what the company is looking for in a future employee; but also takes the time to understand the long-term aspirations of the applicant.
“David’s professionalism and expertise made the recruitment process not only simple and efficient, but he was also able to understand my skills and experience and match these to the right role. I would highly recommend David”.
“After applying for in excess of 30 positions vacant, managing to get only 3 interviews and still having no success in securing a job, I was referred to David Ford at New Point Recruitment. With my new professional Resume in hand together with lots of advice and a draft of how my Cover Letter should be set out, I applied for a position vacant in a very well known organisation. The next day I received a phone call for an interview and the following day another phone call offering me the position. I sincerely cannot thank David Ford enough for his time and expertise in creating my new Resume and Cover Letter.”
